iPad For Daddy!

Written by • Jun 16th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Fitzand gave me an iPad for Fathers’ Day when I picked him up from the kindergarten yesterday. Lol. I was laughing when I saw this ‘iPad’ that he made during their computer class few days ago and he told me … ‘Daddy! Don’t laugh!’. He continued to show me a couple of other stuffs he made for me … The ‘iPad’. 😀 Awww! I love kids’ drawings and so I took some snapshots of these that Fitzand drew on the card he gave me. Now … I think he gets… >> read more


X1 : The Test Run

Written by • Jun 10th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
A week since the X1 got discharged from the ‘hospital’, today is the first time I got to really give it a test run. Like any other weekend of mine (these days) … getting to spend time with my camera alone is usually not possible … and so I took some test shots with the Leica X1 when out with my family today. Apart from these digital shots … I also (finally) managed to finish a roll of film in my La Sardina. Time to make a dash to the… >> read more


Patience Put To Test

Written by • May 28th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Decided to bring Fitzand to check out the Army Open House 2012 yesterday and as expected … a big crowd (that always scares me!) but still the little one had a good time. Hmm … since when do they make the army boys pose with the visitors? I find it a little funny. 😛 There are two things I lack of … hair and patience. I’ve never bothered to join any long queue … be it for food or beer or any other stuff (except for banking and official matters).… >> read more


8 Days Of Fun

Written by • May 2nd, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
A short summary of our Taiwan trip last week. We found out about Leofoo Resort during our previous Taiwan trip a couple of years back and we knew that will be definitely a place to bring Fitzand to for a short trip. We got a room facing the area where the animals were and this is definitely a trip that Fitzand loves lots. He was complaining a lot when we left the resort for Taipei after 4 days because he wanted to stay longer. The awesome thing about this resort… >> read more


Checking Out :(

Written by • Apr 30th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
30 minutes til we check out and hop on the next flight back to Singapore. 🙁 The 8 days vacation just zapped past and it is back home … to reality! I’ll upload these photos taken on the streets of Taipei now … so that I won’t have a backlog of photos to go through when I get back home. My favorite shot (above) … the only one in color. I walked back to the scene 3 minutes after walking past to take this shot … right in front of… >> read more


Pinhole Day 2012

Written by • Apr 29th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
My last (full) day here in Taipei (well … tomorrow we’ll be flying back at 4pm) and it is World Pinhole Day … and I came prepared with the Lensbaby pinhole for some pinhole action. As expected, I can’t spend too much time shooting pinhole and let my family wait … so here are some shots I took today … I did have my Diana F+ with me but didn’t use it for shooting pinhole as it will take looooooooong exposures and I don’t have much time to spare. Luckily… >> read more


Lensbaby In Taiwan (Part I)

Written by • Apr 27th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
After some test run with the X-Pro1 … finally time to whip out my Lensbaby for some big fun! Paired the Composer Pro + Edge 80 optic with my K-01 … I sort of went trigger happy (as usual) and here are 40 of the photos … I really don’t know how to explain this … but each and every time I touch the Lensbaby … I simply go crazy! It is always big fun using the Lensbaby (any version of it) and I’ve never got bored using them. A… >> read more


X-Pro1 Streetshooting

Written by • Apr 26th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
After the infrared test … next comes something more fun (to me) … shooting on the streets with the X-Pro1. I have only the 35mm lens with me and thus it will be a little bit more challenging for me as I usually prefer wide angles for streetshooting. I switched the camera to the black & white (with red filter) film simulation mode and took some test shots while we were making a dash to a late lunch. Dialed -1 on the exposure compensation and fired away … The very… >> read more


X-Pro1 Does IR!

Written by • Apr 25th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
My third day in Taiwan and I’m beginning to love the X-Pro1 more each day. Gosh … now I’m beginning to think that I want one! Since I have a week to play with it … I brought along my Hoya R72 IR filter to test if the cammie can give good results (in IR). I saw some online photos and they claim that the X-Pro1 can do handheld IR in high ISO. Pumping ISO to either 6400 or 12,800 sometimes … it seems that the X-Pro1 is capable to… >> read more


On The Streets With Q

Written by • Apr 14th, 2012 • Category: Digital stuffs
Finally Saturday is here and I can give the Pentax Q a test run. Unfortunately … while I was holding it without a wrist strap (duh!), Fitzand knocked it off my hand and now the cute little Q has some scars. Thank God it still functions well. I did some low light shots to test how the little sensor performs but I’ll post them later. So far I find the low light performance is pretty good despite the tiny sensor but if you wanna know more accurate info about it… >> read more
